January 29, 1941 - April 12, 2021

Warren Monroe Bradshaw of Plano, Texas passed away April 12, 2021 at the age of 80. He was born on January 29, 1941 to Alonzo Monroe Bradshaw and Dorothy (Ferguson) Bradshaw in Brady, Texas.  Warren was an All-State Football Player in Hobbs, New Mexico.  He married his high school sweetheart, Sandra Fae Moon who he met in the 9th grade on August 14, 1959 in Hobbs.  They started their family shortly after marriage.  He started his 45-year professional career in the oil industry, and he worked his way up to sell new products.  His knowledge of the oil industry was highly regarded, and his mastery led him to work in Russia, Egypt, Japan, South America, and many other places.  Warren also resided and worked in Oklahoma and Arizona for a short period.  He was one of the creators of the La-Z-Rest furniture chain.  In 1977, he returned to the oil industry in Midland, Texas.  Warren served in many different management capacities for several start up oil companies.  He retired in 2005, then relocated to Plano, Texas to be closer to his family.  Warren was an avid golfer and loved bass fishing and hunting.  He was a big sports fan, especially the Dallas area sports teams.  Warren was a man of few words.  However, when he spoke, his words were reasonable, held meaning, and had truth behind them.  Warren was a family man whose love and caring extended beyond his household and he made sure his family was never left wanting.  All his life, Warren had a kindness in his heart that could be felt by those who knew him.

He is survived by his wife of 61 years, Sandra Bradshaw of Plano, Texas; sons, Mark Bradshaw and wife, Lynn of San Antonio, Texas, Kevin Bradshaw and wife, Lisa of McKinney, Texas, and Stace Bradshaw and wife, Denise of University Park, Texas; grandchildren, Chad and wife, Carly, Colton, Chase, Crystal and husband, Corey, Parker, Grayson, Brady, Nicole, BethAnne, and RaeAnne; great-grandchildren, Beau, Noah and Aidyn; best dog companions, Molly and Bella; numerous other loving family and friends.

John F Shrode, April 18, 2021 Condolences to all the Bradshaw family. Getting to know you over the past few years has been a special blessing. Praying that GOD give you strength through the coming days and sending love and understanding. Julia Foster, April 18, 2021 There has never been a finer man that Warren Monroe Bradshaw. My youth was spent in glorious memories of time with him from the time we put the tin on top of my dads' shop in Hobbs (30' off the ground) and watch for Sandra to drive by on the highway below and wave at Warren. and to being together at the basketball tournament in Roswell when a bunch of boys cornered us and watching Warren literally send 3 of them begging to be let loose. He was a young man to be admired, loved and respected. I will miss him always. Ted Key, April 18, 2021 Our condolences to the family of Warren Bradshaw. It was my privilege to have known Warren for 50 years. He kept his family at the top of his priorites and he and Sandra successfully raised their children to thrive in today's world. Warren was a successful and thoughtful businessman, who used his talents to good advantage. He was cool, calm and collected in dealing with others. He was a true leader, a great athlete and a fierce competitor on the golf course. He will be missed.
Tim & Jane maroney, April 17, 2021 Dear Bradshaw Family, Please accept our deepest sympathies on your loss. Mr Bradshaw (he will always be Mr Bradshaw to me) was the kind of man whose presence commanded respect, but he was always balanced and fair, never harsh or rushed to judgement. In retrospect he was trying to train and prepare us to enter the real world as only a man with his experiences could. Sure most of us didn’t grasp or appreciate that at the time, but can say today it was an honor to know him. Melvin Douglas & Family, April 16, 2021 One of my favorite Bradshaw’s ! Steve Bradshaw, April 15, 2021 I remember him as one of the kindest of men. Sandra, my heart and love go out to you and your family. Sally Seed, April 15, 2021 This just makes me so sad. We all loved Warren from our junior high days in Hobbs! He was everybody’s favorite. Such a gentle loving giant. Always kind and considerate. It breaks my heart that he’s gone. There was always Sandra and Warren and we loved reconnecting at class reunions over the years since we graduated!! He is missed! He was so proud of his family. My thoughts and prayers are with you all as you meet the rest of your lives without his physical presence but pray the memories will never die!

George Mitchell, April 14, 2021 Warren was a great Dad. I'll be eternally grateful to have had such a loving, caring, and dedicated father who always put his family first. I'll miss him the rest of my days. Rest in peace, sweet Dad. Stace, Denise, BethAnne, & RaeAnne Bradshaw, April 13, 2021 Big Daddy was a gentle man who I loved very much! I have a lot of good memories of him at family gatherings at Kevin and Lisa’s house. He always made me feel like I was family. I will miss him terribly! He was one in a million! Til we meet again Big Daddy, RIP! You were loved!
